One Missed Call (2008)



Critic Consensus: One of the weakest entries in the J-horror remake sweepstakes, One Missed Call is undone by bland performances and shopworn shocks.

Movie Info

Shannyn Sossamon and Ed Burns star in director Eric Valette's remake of Takashi Miike's frightful tale about a cell-phone call from the future that foreshadows one's own death. Beth Raymond (Sossamon) is a college student whose friends have all been dying in droves, and the one connecting factor between all of the incidents is that just before their deaths, each of the victims received a message in which they heard themselves being murdered. Upon receiving her own frightening phone call, Beth has only three days to solve the mystery and cheat death. Burns co-stars as a detective who is deeply troubled by the recent spate of deaths.
PG-13 (for intense sequences of violence and terror, frightening images, some sexual material and thematic elements)

Critic Reviews for One Missed Call

All Critics (79) | Top Critics (18)

One big miss of a horror movie.

October 18, 2008
Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Top Critic

To redial applicable catchphrases, this garbled American remake of Takashi Miike's already staticky 2004 exercise in J-horror is a wrong number.

The direction is uninspired, acting is lifeless, and the script borders on the inept. A PG-13 rating means that it's short on shocks, too.

Top Critic

If you missed the first One Missed Call, made in Japan in 2004, you now can miss the American remake.

Chicago Sun-Times
Top Critic

The best part of the movie is the fact that, at a running time of an hour and a half, it's mercifully short.

Given all the hoopla over the Apple iPhone, it's a wonder that no one has yet complained over an essential missing feature: It doesn't ring you up to alert you that you are going to die.

Audience Reviews for One Missed Call


It was okay. Actually starts off reasonably well. Liked Shannyn Sossamon and the brief appearance of Azura Skye. Goes downhill a bit after the first few deaths and loses it. Not a total disaster. Was fine for a late night TV viewing, but wouldn't want to have paid money for it.

As far as American J-horror remakes go, this might be the worst (and I've seen The Uninvited).

One of the worst and most unnecessary remakes ever made.
